Responding Biblically to the Refugee Crisis

eI consider this video to be one of the most important things I’ve posted on this blog in recent months. It relates to and encapsulates a lot of the concerns I’ve expressed recently about politics and Christian political attitudes; especially regarding the refuge crisis caused by events in the middle east.
Compare the content of this video with today’s all too common rhetoric about refugees.

Responding to the Mounting Refugee Crisis (BONUS FEATURES) from FAI on Vimeo.

From one man He made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and He marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him

One thought on “Responding Biblically to the Refugee Crisis

  1. I have seen signs when people are in the streets (or on sidewalks, or on grass, or wherever they are) lately… saying that Jesus was a refugee. Things like that.

    And I’m thinking, for any who want to think of Passover or more than the “New Testament” (as a collection has come to be known), those who left Egypt were told to remember being strangers.

    Jesus both fled to Egypt and came from Egypt. I’m sure he heeded the commandment to remember, both based on his having been in Egypt (as well as his living in the Land with the Herods, etc., in charge) and looking back to the Exodus (and the history before that, such as with Joseph) and keeping Passover (as a Jew).
